Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

There is a decent solo campaign mode and lots of servers where you can find other players for a multiplayer game. So if you like 3D deathmatch games, you should try this one. I think you'll like it! There's one negative point I'd like to mention: When you start the game it...

This game is a remake of "Wing Commander: Privateer" from 1993. You take the role of a space captain with an old ship who travels the universe to make some money. The game isn't very linear and leaves you the freedom of choice how to do so: Will you become a peaceful merchant, a pirate or a mercanary that performs various missions for the Confederation or the Kilrathi? Of course there's also a plot in the background, but it's up to you if you want to follow it or ignore it for some...
